Peace is our profession

In the underground launch control center at Minot Air Force Base’s Missile Alert Facility B-1, 1st Lt. John Manibusan (left) and 2nd Lt. Trey Marshall are on duty. The missile combat crew will be on duty for 24 hours, able to monitor and launch Minuteman III missiles if directed. If necessary, they can remain sealed in the capsule for a week, existing on stored food and water and relying on self-contained power and environmental systems. The officers are with the 740th Missile Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lance Cheung)
